Heheh…the weather we ordered seemed to have been delivered as we wanted…sunny and cloudless skies and temperatures reasonably toasty at 3-4°C. So we cannot complain about it. You’ve read about our earlier post where we shared the “frenzy” of women preparing for the big Valentine celebration. We too had a wonderful dinner at one of them rooftop restaurants (no, not open air).
Today however we are sharing with you some wonderful pictures of the city, from the imperial palace to the Hamarikyu gardens (entry cost ¥300pp) …
Because it is too late to register online for it, Mel could only walk around the perimeter of the palace during lunch breaks (the office is near Tokyo station). So a nice stroll to get away from the office humdrum…but these views are already very nice!
Ah Tokyo Tower (¥900pp to the top). So many times we’ve seen it. Finally done it. Got to the top and spotted a glimpse of Mr Fuji in the distant. Ok, not quite like the poster where Mr Fuji looms large over the city. That one might be photo-shopped…either that or it’s another city. Definitely not Tokyo we think! LOL. Ok, it is really the angle and the place one takes the photo. Just don’t expect that from Tokyo tower or Skytree!
Finally Mel is done with pounding the corporate floorboard and we will soon be on the Shinkansen to Toyama where we will pound the accelerator of our rental car around the coast! Journalogs will follow. Ciao!
